I am setting up a 40B vert and I got a very good deal on a mistking set up with premium nozzles, timer, etc.

I was researching how many nozzles to run in the 40B and I began to be a little concerned that a mistking might be OVERKILL. Is this thing going to just drench things too much? Is it really designed to be used with multiple vivs only?

If it will work for me, how many nozzles would you use in a 40B? I am planning on drilling an overflow.

Thanks for the replies!

Great reply. Thanks! I do emergency service work so time can be a challenge. I automated my fish tank and it was the best thing for both me and the fish.It also gives me more time to enjoy the "fun" part.
As far as the plan for the tank goes- It will be a vertical set up I have one of aaafrogs LED light set ups and a vertical conversion kit coming.
I plan on having lots of plants though specific types have not been decided. I enjoy the plant side of things alot.
I hope to have more than adequate ventilation and plan on using fans. I am still researching this as well.

Here are is a list and some pics of the mistking set up I got -
Mist King Pump with backflow valve to prevent backflow into reservoir
Mist King seconds timer I can mist down to just a couple of seconds.
2- 4 Head misters fully directional
2- 2 Head misters fully directional
1- Single Head Misters fully directional
7 Port Distribution Block
many ball valves, tees, 90 fittings
2g Reservoir with bulkhead




Sorry no good pics of the timer....I believe it is the 29.99 version.

AHHH...False Bottom! Yeah, a false bottom will be used for sure.

The port will go on the classified section then. Hopefully someone will make good use of it.

Thanks for the nozzle info Ed. I will keep some of the extra nozzles to experiment with. More nozzles and less time makes sense though.

Thanks again for all the great info everyone. It looks like I can officially move on to other parts of my research. Air circulation.....:D
